What a debut!
Our first ever Partnership Party (replacing Jeans & Jewels) is history. But, oh, what a night! There was dancing, laughter, games, and–the highlight of the evening–a standing ovation for a few of our winning Da Vinci Fest students. Thanks to our generous donors, our net proceeds of more than $75,000 will help teachers create tons of wonder in the classroom.
